Leading Italian gaming operator Snaitech has migrated its end-to-end payment processing infrastructure to the SafeCharge Payments Engine in an effort to improve the user experience.

The SafeCharge migration sees Snaitech benefit from a direct connection to VISA and Mastercard schemes and a variety of Italy’s most popular e-Wallets, including PayPal, Skrill and Neteller.

It also offers Snaitech players the opportunity to seamlessly place bets and collect winnings to their bank accounts using the payment method of their choice across mobile and web devices.

"We identified SafeCharge as the ideal payment partner to meet the expectations of players demanding a seamless deposit and withdrawal journey for their online and mobile gaming experience," said Fabio Schiavolin, chief executive of Snaitech. "We can now cater for a very diverse player base with a variety of preferred payment methods. SafeCharge is a leading payments technology company. The reliability and safety guarantee in payment processing will allow us to offer our customers an increasingly safe and simple user experience."

SafeCharge chief operating officer Yuval Ziv added: "Italy is a strategic market for us, particularly for gaming, travel and retail/e-commerce. We found that innovation, performance and business optimisation are the key main drivers necessary to further stimulate this digital revolution and our development team is quickly fulfilling the requests of some of the most demanding customers in the region. As more customers realise the benefits of implementing a flexible, robust and open payments technology infrastructure, SafeCharge will keep on growing steadily."
